firstname.lastname@example.org should get messages of patch manager activity (at least certain actions; not sure which ones yet, but at least additions).
Fred, would you please explain how that works or where that was set up? I've puttered away many hours now playing with the SourceForge facilities (alas, most of that time waiting for web pages to load), but haven't stumbled into anything that hints the patch manager knows anything about email@example.com.
Yes, it's hidden, and Fred had to show me too.
First, login to SourceForge. Then, go to the Python Project. In the left sidebar, under Project: Python, go to Project Admin. Near the top, you now see some navigation links; go to Edit Public Info. At the very bottom there are three text fields for email addresses.
The address for New Patches (a misnomer -- it's really all changes made to the Patch Manager) says firstname.lastname@example.org.
The address for New Bugs is currently set to email@example.com. I suppose I should set it to firstname.lastname@example.org or even to email@example.com?
We're not using the Support manager yet.
